Just sayin' bout Freddy, he didn't wanna be the Poster Boy for AIDS.

I had a book by some Brit and it might have been T Pratchett. One of his repeated humorous devices was to mentinon finding Queen tapes in the car when looking for something else.

Aw, WTF, someone will play it if it is not me.

Carry on, carry on.

Hustler Magazine v. Falwell

In 1983, Larry Flynt's pornographic magazine Hustler carried a parody of a Campari ad, featuring a mock "interview" with Falwell in which he admits that his "first time" was incest with his mother in an outhouse while drunk.

Falwell sued for $45 million, alleging invasion of privacy, libel, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. A jury rejected the invasion of privacy and libel claims, holding that the parody could not have reasonably been taken to describe true events, but ruled in favor of Falwell on the emotional distress claim and awarded damages of $200,000. This was upheld on appeal.

Flynt then appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court, which unanimously held that the First Amendment prevents public figures from recovering damages for emotional distress caused by parodies.

After Falwell's death, Larry Flynt released a comment regarding his friendship over the years with Falwell.

"My mother always told me that no matter how much you dislike a person, when you meet them face to face you will find characteristics about them that you like. Jerry Falwell was a perfect example of that. I hated everything he stood for, but after meeting him in person, years after the trial, Jerry Falwell and I became good friends. He would visit me in California and we would debate together on college campuses. I always appreciated his sincerity even though I knew what he was selling and he knew what I was selling."

Happens all the time round here.

Fallwell, an oxymoron? Just a moron? Can a word be a hypocrite too?

Trying to think of notable Sothherners. Flynt, HST? Kentucky Colonels? DMT?

Seeing some history remembered here makes me smile. Nice hat. Cheers.

Nostalgia, when impeachable offenses included lying about a blow job.

Say what you will, but I'll take those that will lie, while maybe misguidedly trying to help you, over those who lie, and do their best to f@ck you.

Again, nice hat, really.

Falwell, got a little on the side, didn't he?

aH, WHAT CAN I SAY?

Thank you zB.

In all that you share your superiority shines through.
I've tried to, too.
in fact I did retreat, but have been drawn back in.

I will re-double my efforts to curb my verbiage & increase my scarcity.

Hey,
What can I say. What else should I say?
IF there ARE MORE apologies that are necessary?
I apologize.

there is so much to reflect on, having re-read the pre-gnome.
Amazing !

What follows was a knee jerk, ( just the later?) post
directed to the Docs of the highest reknown in a field that demands ernest thought mixed with wild imagination, some folks are so lucky to have embraced the vast ability of the human condition. . . (Sorry Z)

". . . . have you ever read "Tuxedo Park", by Jennet Conant,
The story of the 1st rad lab that was responsible for winning world war II, so ancient history, but it hints that the Swiss tutors were early climbers in the woods of the East Coast.

To which I can only add a name who was once in that Particle Collider game & most likely is a name you know?

Tor . . .

I would love to hear from Dr Raubenhiemer, I owe him a world of thanks, my world is so much richer because of all the rock, rope & partners that we shared.

Say hello to him if he ever comes by.
His family were the impetus for all the climbing that starts the most of the horde that flows out of the Gunks.[/quote]
